Bellafill® is a long-lasting injectable filler that is FDA approved to treat acne scars and nasolabial folds, which are the “smile lines” that extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. As we age, our natural collagen production slows, resulting in deeper wrinkles and less skin elasticity. Bellafill® stimulates collagen production to fill in lines, wrinkles, and acne scars with results that last up to five years.
How Does Bellafill® Work?
Bellafill® utilizes an advanced collagen gel formula with polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), which is a well-established medical material. The unique properties of PMMA microspheres allow Bellafill® to deliver longer lasting results than other injectable fillers. Many other injectable fillers use hyaluronic acid, which is easily absorbed by the body. The tiny PMMA microspheres in Bellafill® remain under the skin to stimulate natural collagen production and create a scaffolding that lifts and adds volume to smooth smile lines or fill in deep acne scars.
What to Expect From Bellafill® at Long Island Plastic Surgical Group
Exclusively offered by Dr. Frederick Lukash, the first step is a consultation to discuss your goals and determine if Bellafill® is right for you. Bellafill® is strategically injected just below the surface of the skin in a quick procedure that typically lasts less than 30 minutes. Several areas may be treated in one appointment and Bellafill® injections can be combined with other non-surgical procedures. Contact us to schedule your Bellafill® consultation.
“I was astounded at how quickly I could see the results from Bellafill. It was almost instantaneous. Results happened while sitting in Dr. Lukash’s office. Words cannot tell you how happy I am now. Yes, I would recommend Bellafill to everyone. No surgery, no waiting. Best thing I could have done.”
-Testimonial From an Actual Bellafill® Patient of Dr. Lukash at Long Island Plastic Surgical Group
Bellafill® treatment is fully customized for each patient. In addition to smoothing acne scars and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, our expert practitioners can also use Bellafill® to restore lost volume throughout the face. When injected in the temples, cheeks, and mid-face area, Bellafill® can rejuvenate the face for a youthful, refined look.
Bellafill® results will be visible immediately after treatment, and may continue to improve as your natural collagen strengthens. Patients who treat acne scars with Bellafill® typically see results that last up to one year, while results for nasolabial folds treated with Bellafill® last up to five years.
